ABOUT OUR HOST
It started with a comical tale about raisin bread, baked in an outport kitchen… without raisins. Today, Hubert Furey has been more surprised than anyone by what has followed for him. The outpouring of interest for his recitations about rural life in yesteryear Newfoundland and Labrador led to a full-length recording of stories. Concerts, live theatre performances, television and radio appearances promoting recitations, and the resurgence of the art form have been a delight for this former district superintendent of education and lifetime Harbour Main resident. Hubert and his wife, Eleanor, have five children and six grandchildren. The Most Perfect Gift is his second book. His first, As the Old Folks Would Say, earned critical acclaim .
The St. John’s Storytelling Circle runs the second Wednesday of each month from 7:00 – 9:00 pm at Erin’s Pub, with opportunities for new storytellers to spin a yarn. Erin’s Pub is located at 186 Water Street, St. John’s, Newfoundland, Canada.
The Storytelling Circle and other Festival events are cell phone-free zones and absolutely NO recording is permitted without the PRIOR permission of the teller and the organizers.
